As with any investment on the JSE, the return is subject to fluctuations associated with market conditions. Investing in one share can be very risky. Spreading an investment portfolio over several shares can reduce this risk. Satrix securities offer investors this diversification without the associated additional costs of buying shares in several companies.
Markets are volatile and one is not guaranteed to get back the initial amount invested when you do decide to sell.
Equity investing is high risk and should be a long term endeavour, with a minimum investment term of 5 to 7 years.
